-The line of security solutions includes new features to guard against threats like webcam hacking and data theft
SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — ESET has launched version 10 of its premium line of security solutions for home users. ESET Smart Security Premium is built upon the award-winning NOD32 technology that offers the optimal mix of detection, speed and usability. In addition, the new product provides features including ESET Password Manager for easier and safer authentication, as well as ESET Secure Data for convenient and strong encryption.

Besides ESET Smart Security Premium, users will also be able to enjoy the brand new ESET Internet Security. For gamers, the exceptionally well-received ESET NOD32 Antivirus 10 remains the ideal suite with enhanced protection against script-based attacks.

“As internet threats get more and more diverse, users need more complex internet security suites with features based on individual preferences. Our new product portfolio fully reflects this trend,” explains Lukas Raska, Chief Operating Officer for Asia Pacific at ESET.

With the new line of products, ESET highlights the need for privacy when operating PCs and laptops. ESET Webcam Protection — available with both ESET Smart Security Premium and ESET Internet Security — regulates access to the camera so the end user is fully protected. Consumers will be able to monitor, block or allow processes and applications attempting to access the webcam, and switch off the computer’s camera as needed.

“The recent series of DDoS attacks in the U.S. and Singapore have shown how important it is for customers to ensure that the devices they use every day are secured against malware threats,” said Mr Raska. “The ESET Webcam Protection is just one of the many new features of ESET Smart Security Premium 10, which promises fast, lightweight and proactive protection for customers’ webcams, files, passwords and home networks, within a single, integrated solution.”

The ESET Smart Security Premium and Internet Security product portfolio for home users also includes many established features such as Banking & Payment Protection, Anti-spyware, Anti-Phishing, Exploit Blocker, advanced Personal Firewall, and the ESET LiveGrid Reputation System.

ESET is also consistently successful in independent tests, having received 98 prestigious VB100 awards for its NOD32 antivirus technology, by far the most received by one product. Recently, ESET Smart Security 9 was certified as the only security solution with 100% protection among all products in SE Labs’ Home Anti-Malware Protection test and received the highest score in the AV-Comparatives’ Performance Test across all tested internet security products. ESET was also found to be the undisputed No.1 in Spam Protection, dominating the VBSpam Test and AV-Comparatives Anti-Spam Test.

What’s new in version 10?

Script-Based Attack Protection detects attacks by malicious scripts that try to exploit Windows PowerShell. It also detects malicious JavaScript that can attack via the browser; all major browsers are supported.
Home Network Protection enables users to test home routers vulnerabilities, such as weak passwords or out-of-date firmware, and offers them options for remediation. It also provides an easy-to-access list of connected devices, with devices categorized by type and shows who’s connected. This helps users see how safe their home networks are.
Webcam Protection is a feature that controls processes and applications that access computer connected web cameras and displays notifications when unwanted applications try to access the camera.
ESET Password Manager employs AES‑256 encryption – the world’s leading standard – to store and pre-fill all users’ passwords. It also generates and stores extra-strong new passwords each time the user needs one.
ESET Secure Data protects against data theft in the event of USB-key or laptop loss, and allows for secure collaboration and data sharing.
